He needs to stop being buddy-buddy with the players. There needs to be a fear-factor between Tomlin and the players like there was when Cowher was the coach.

I don't personally care for the taunting but...what's the overall fear of it? If the defence or special team can let a guy run backwards into the endzone for 25 yards, well they ought to take whatever is coming their way...taunting, dancing, broadway show, one-act plays whatever..

Please, Cowher's team had no shortage of brash, in-your-face personalities both on and off the field. Just because he had a big chin doesn't mean he was this harsh disciplinarian that had his players in military form (which they were far from).

this is another grand myth amongst steelerfans (along with the "deer in headlight" fear and confusion tomlin suffers from).

are you suggesting tomlin should kis ben on the cheek like cowher did kordell.

does tomlin need to say "i love you" more like cowher did with bettis? (was any coach EVER more buddy-buddy with a player?)

how about cowhers love affair with joey porter? who is tomlins personal team mouthpiece?

nobody was ever more of a players coach than cowher was. well maybe his assistant HC russ grimm who would pound a few (cases?) with the o-line in the parking lot after games.

people always make these claims, but do any of you have any factual evidence to base tomlin being more friendly and cowher such a hard ass, other than spit flying and sideline demeanor?

please share.

anyone remember tomlins 1st camp (lacing hampton on the PUP). nobody was certainly calling him their buddy then.

Ah, but that's the thing. Cowher did those things as you said, but he knew when it was time to haul-ass when guys screwed up. Players actually feared making a mistake. Today, we too often see the same things. Undisciplined penalties, showboating after routine plays, mouthing off to the media, and just a general lack of humility.

I for one think believe Tomlin knows how to coach better than anyone else here on this forum, therefore i'll refrain from really criticizing him. People loved Cowher, but the fact of the matter is: He got his Super Bowl and hit the road. Took him a while to get it, but he got it, and got out. Tomlin has took us there twice, and I think we'll see the big game a few times yet in this decade.
